    The Veriton L4610G models support the Sandy Bridge processors, which are the Intel 2nd gen. The i7-3770 is 3rd gen and will not work. What CPU is in it now? As long as you match the gen, the socket and the TDP you should be good, though it likely will make very little difference with overall system speed.

    So the i7-2600 is a direct drop in replacement, but you won't see much of an increase in overall speed. Typically we suggest first doing a HDD -> SSD upgrade, then memory to max, then GPU if applicable and only CPU after the rest are done.

    Yes, you should be able to run an i7-2600S as a drop in replacement. That will give you a few more threads, but essentially no real speed improvement for most applications.
